Easy, Healthful Baked Fish

Baking fish fillets is a quick, simple way to get dinner on the table without adding a ton of fat or calories, and they can be seasoned in many ways.

Asian flavors are popular. BigSal is a fan of Nina Simonds's broiled halibut with miso glaze, which she says is "delicious and simple to prepare." TwoTarts combines equal parts mustard, brown sugar, and soy sauce, spreads it on salmon, and broils.

Val says of fish fillets Dijon, "I've used this on mahi-mahi and cod with great results," and margib makes roasted cod and tomatoes with basil and white wine with halibut or salmon as well as cod, adding capers and feta cheese.

"Doing fish en papillote is wonderfully delicious and can be very healthy," says chefathome. "Just add some fresh lemon or orange juice (heck, grapefruit or lime!), veg cut small so they cook quickly (i.e., julienne), parboiled baby potatoes, fresh herbs, a touch of butter, and season. Fun opening up at the table, too!"

JungMann makes fish flavorful by rubbing a spice paste of garlic, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and allspice onto fillets and baking on a bed of sliced onion and lemon, and serving with a sauce made from olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and a little bit of the spice paste.
